Here you have a vintage magazine, Leisure Arts Magazine - June 1989 - fair vintage condition, 29 projects in this issue; these charts are always lovely to work from and in this issue you have a variety of projects which include crafts, cross stitch, knitting, crochet, and needlework. I have worked from some of the magazines so many will show evidence of use but they are a nice item which has survived all this time and would be something you won't see in the shops these days! As the magazines were working copies, I have in some instances made notes or marks on the pages at the time of use; for the most part (though not always), these marks are in pencil so you could erase them if needed.

A long time ago (in the '80s and 90's to be precise....), I was crazy into cross stitch and embroidery and such like, and at that time it was almost impossible to get magazines of any kind (there were no British magazines on the subject) and it was difficult to get the supplies and oh so on and so forth, so when I took out a subscription for these magazines all the way from the United States (at the time a very expensive subscription!) I'd wait with such excitement and anticipation for them to arrive and would spend hours and hours reading and learning and absorbing all the artistry and the creativity which at that time was almost foreign to the UK - it was just something that wasn't part of our culture. I had a favourite embroidery shop which was called Hepatica in Wilmslow, Cheshire, and occasionally they would carry these magazines - but not always, and I'd spend hours - hundreds, thousands of hours working on beautiful things for my home, my parents home, friends homes, anyone I could give stuff to....you get the picture. So its not so surprising that I kept these treasured magazines.

I have lots of cross stitch and general embroidery stuff to list on Etsy and will be working on this over the next few months alongside my other shop which concentrates on my handmade and vintage jewellery (www.etsy.com/shop/slcdesignuk); sadly I no longer stitch as my eyesight isn't up to it and I lack the time these days to put into these beautiful treasures. I truly hope the new owner of my vintage stitching treasure will enjoy it as much as I have over the years.

NOTE ABOUT POSTAGE: Because it's a printed item (and therefore a little heavy), I have just listed the price of postage for the UK at the moment - if you are from overseas and want a quote for postage then please get in touch with me,
Also, if you purchase a few magazines with me and I find the postage and packing price is more than £1 less than you've paid out, I will gladly refund any difference, leave that one with me.

Please note, all magazines are sent via second class mail without recorded delivery unless you opt to upgrade to using recorded delivery.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

THE PRICE OF POSTAGE
* Apologies for the rising costs of postage and packing - this is down to the post office, as I do not make a profit from postage! Unfortunately postage costs have risen considerably recently (as they have all over the world apparently) and this is the cost of mailing these days. Sad but true.

WHAT POSTAL SERVICES DO I USE?
* In the UK I use either First Class Recorded Delivery (trackable and insured) - overseas I use Air Mail. If you want me to mail via special delivery please ask and I will raise an additional invoice for you to pay for this.

To the rest of the World - please ask if you need information prior to purchase - I will do my best to find out for you.
If you require international postage insurance and tracking please ask and I will raise an additional invoice so we can use the International Signed for service (trackable and postal insured);

CUSTOMS CHARGES
* For overseas customers, please note that your item may go through your local customs office; any customs charges on your purchase are your responsibility.

DELIVERY DISCLAIMER
* I will try my best to get something to you for your specific date, but this cannot be guaranteed.

* Please allow enough time for your item to be delivered to your corner of the world - it takes time for things to whizz through the post, and then they sometimes get caught up in customs - please take that into consideration when you purchase.

* I am sorry, but I cannot be held responsible for an item not arriving in time for a specific event - if you are at all concerned, please contact me BEFORE ordering. I always keep customers informed when items are mailed, and I always provide tracking information.

ARRANGING A COURIER
* If you would like me to mail your item via courier, this of course can be arranged - please brace yourself for the cost though! I will try hard to get the best deal I can, so if you need something in a hurry, this is an option I can arrange with you.


Payments

* I can take payment through Paypal, through Etsy's payment system or via my own credit card processing facility (please contact me if you want to use the latter option).


Returns & exchanges

* I hope you will be delighted with your purchase which will be made with love and care. In over 14 years of trading through my own website I have had very few problems and I try very hard to keep my customers happy - if you're happy, then I hope you'll come back or even tell your friends, so I work hard to keep it that way between us.

IF RETURNING AN ITEM POSTAGE COST DETAILS
* If you return an item, you are responsible for paying your own postage and your refund will be less the postage fees I have already paid out for you (at my discretion).

RETURN DETAILS
* If you do return something, you must return that item in its original packaging, unworn and in the same condition it was in when you received it - and any free gifts, packaging (bubble wrap, tissue) must be returned with the item. I advise you use a tracking and/or a signed for service when returning items in case the item goes astray in the mail. The buyer is responsible for return postage costs.

WHEN DO I RECEIVE A REFUND WHEN RETURNING AN ITEM?
I will refund when the item has been delivered back to me.

CANCELLING AN ORDER
* You may cancel your order any time before it is mailed if you wish to (though obviously, I hope you won't want to!)

VINTAGE ITEMS
Vintage items will show some signs of wear and tear by previous owners. I try very hard to describe items accurately - if you have any questions about an item, please contact me.


Additional policies

PRESENTATION
* All my packages go out carefully wrapped in the hope and belief this will minimise the bangs and knocks that travelling can inflict....

WE SPEAK FRENCH
* Oui! Nous parlons Francais. (Yes, we speak French - well, actually my husband does but it you want to parlez with us, please feel free!)

RESERVE AN ITEM
* I can reserve items prior to purchase for you for up to a week - let me know if you'd like me to do this.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY PURCHASE TO ARRIVE?
* I will try my best to get your purchase to you for your specific date, but this cannot be guaranteed.
First Class/Recorded mail in the UK usually takes up to 3 working days - this is the service that you are purchasing when you make payment.

Special Delivery in the UK usually is next working day delivery, this service is available at additional cost - please ask if you require it and I can find out how much it will be for you.

- Deliveries to the USA are approx. 7 - 10 working days, though this may be longer or shorter, depending on the time of year - for instance, Christmas. Your item may or may not then be with your customs offices for a while. This is out of my control, sorry.

WHAT POSTAL SERVICES DO I USE?
* In the UK I use either First Class Recorded Delivery (trackable and insured) - overseas I use Air Mail.

To the rest of the World - please ask if you need information prior to purchase - I will do my best to find out for you.
